We've been in Playa Hermosa for the last 10 days, sampling the restaurants in the area. El Velero is one of our favorites. Awesome sunsets, friendly waiters, good food selections at reasonable prices. Their chicken Parmesan is AWESOME.... nice & crisp and a good size. They also prepare fresh fish to perfection.

If you are in Playa Hermosa, be sure to head down to the Hotel El Velero for a spectacular sunset view. On Wednesdays and Saturdays the restaurant has a BBQ menu.

We both enjoyed our seafood meal, accompanied with rice, beans, and veggies. Not awesome, but very good food. The price was comparable to the other pricey restaurants,

One complaint: Why did our server not tell us about "banner advertised" Two-for-One Dinner Specials?

Wife and I ate here twice in early September. We both loved our dishes so much that we returned to have the same thing again. She got the ceviche and I had the tenderloin sandwich. Great quality and value. Highly recommended.

Had a great breakfast here during my 5 days in Playa Hermosa. Food was fresh and delicious and service was good. Price was high for Costa Rica standards, but not for what you are getting in general. Lovely beachfront setting.

If you are in Playa Hermosa, be sure to head down to the Hotel El Velero for happy hour and a spectacular sunset view. Grab a cold one or a fruity cocktail and sit at a table near the beach. On Wednesdays and Saturdays the restaurant has a BBQ menu, which we ordered and really enjoyed. Bring your camera, and spray down with a little bug spray beforehand.
